- Putin dissolves state news agency, tightens grip on media
By Timothy Heritage MOSCOW (Reuters) - Vladimir Putin tightened his hold on Russia's media on Monday by dissolving the main state news agency, seen by hawks as too liberal, and creating a new outlet to improve Moscow's image under a more conservative editor. The abolition of RIA Novosti, as well as international radio station Voice of Russia, and establishment of a news agency to be called Rossiya Segodnya (Russia Today) is part of efforts to strengthen the president's authority after protests against him. It is also designed to improve Russia's international standing after growing Western criticism of its record on human rights and democracy, and accusations, which it denies, of bullying neighbors such as Ukraine. Political analyst Pavel Salin said the decision was probably a result of Kremlin turf wars and a victory for the conservatives.
